There are times when parents may require support with a particular area of difficulty or are looking for ways to develop their child’s strengths.

Ways we can help

Providing strategies and resources that work in school
Offering or organizing training relating to issues or strategies /interventions.
Signposting to services
Making referrals to relevant professionals or organisations


There are a number of websites and organisations, which offer information and support to families of autistic children. They often offer events or activities that are free to children and families. It is useful for parents to sign up to websites in order to receive notification of events however we will try to forward information about any activities we think the children may be interested in e.g. autism support, training, information friendly cinema screenings or relaxed performances at the theatre.
